    I installed this on my Firefox and after everything, I did see the download link but when I clicked on it, it didn’t download the song but just opened the mp3 as a quicktime player file on Firefox itself (I don’t know how else to describe it, sorry). Is there another step from there or did I do something wrong?

    every time i install tumtaster, the script doesn’t install and it appears like an html. i think the problem is because i just updated my firefox to firefox 4 and it can’t install tumtaster.
